Mrs. Clinton’s job plan starts with those workers in the high-rise buildings—in other words, with you. Under her plan, any U.S. manufacturing company that decides it is going to move offshore will be charged an exit tax. The revenue generated by these taxes will be used to create “good-paying jobs” for all Americans. Well, if you are going to lie, then I guess you should go for all the marbles by preying on the most uninformed of our population.
In the first place, an exit tax makes little sense because any company willing to pay it is going to leave anyway. A one-time exit tax that enables your business to survive rather than go bankrupt under the weight of union demands and government regulations, is a small price to pay. What the exit tax really amounts to is government extortion. Mrs. Clinton conveniently fails to mention that under her husband’s NAFTA program, manufacturing jobs left this country long ago. The fox has already raided the henhouse.
Secondly, you might remember something else: the government does not create private sector jobs, and in order for most Americans to go back to work, that is where the jobs need to be. President Obama has already demonstrated that if over $800 billion in government stimulus money couldn’t spur private sector job creation, then it will be impossible using the meager revenue generated from Hillary’s exit tax. In all likelihood, what will happen is that any money received via this tax will flow right into the government coffers for the creation of more social programs. After all, votes for Hillary’s second term should be bought during her first. And, just as with Obama, any funding that appears to go into the private sector will actually be lining the pockets of her crony supporters. Remember Solyndra? How about Fisker Automotive?
The wheels of our private sector will only start to turn when a few things happen—things that Donald Trump has already pointed out. First, trade deficits must be fixed in a manner that does not allow advantageous pricing margins to outside competitors. Second, government regulation of manufacturing industries must be simplified and made reasonable. For example, the EPA must be reined in from writing laws through regulation. Third, our federal government must once again be made to understand that the only part it plays in a healthy economy is to create an environment in which the free market can thrive. Levying higher corporate taxes and raising the minimum wage—both in Mrs. Clinton’s economic plan—will stifle jobs growth. Donald Trump needs to present this sensible, three-pronged approach over and over again so that the low-information crowd finally gets it. Also, it would be helpful if the RNC stopped undermining Trump by incessantly whining that he can’t stay on message. They haven’t produced a viable candidate or platform in the last two presidential election cycles and we’re supposed to be offended by Mr. Trump’s antics? For my money, Mr. Trump has not been afraid to call Hillary out on her bogus jobs plan, questionable alliances, or habitual dishonesty and lawbreaking activities—which is more than I can say for the gutless RNC, its chairman, and the rest of the Washington RINO’s.
Donald Trump has created thousands of jobs in the private sector. He understands how it works, and he understands how important the private sector’s survival is to wage-earning Americans and the growth of our economy. Hillary Clinton is interested in power and control through government intervention, oversight and regulation. Trump is interested in taking the liberal shackles off of the private sector and letting it drive America to greatness again. How difficult is that to see and understand?
Today we have a life-long entrepreneur running against a career criminal for the office of President of the United States. Recently, overwhelming evidence came to light that Mrs. Clinton and her cronies in the DNC will lie, cheat, bribe and maybe even steal, to ensure her nomination. By contrast, Donald Trump’s character flaws are nothing. Yes, he’s bombastic, flamboyant, testy, defensive, and sarcastic. He's also hugely successful. Mrs. Clinton lies. Lies repeatedly. Lies about hubby Bill and the Right Wing Conspiracy. Lies about Benghazi. Lies about cattle futures. Lies about emails and servers. Lies about lying. So we shouldn’t be surprised that her jobs plan is a big fat lie too.
